Surprisingly, we ran the first mile without any walking breaks!! I completed mile 1 in 11 minutes (including two doggie potty breaks), so I was pretty pleased with that time.
After two laps, Tequila was pretty tired. I dropped her by the house and continued on for another lap, plus a trip down another little "extra" road. I was feeling a little tired, so I decided to take a few walking breaks during the second mile. My time for that mile was 11:37, which was pretty good considering the walking breaks and the stop of dropping the dog off.
I can tell I haven't run in a while because my quads were already a little sore last night! Oh well, I'll get back to where I was. The big thing is I completed what I set out to do and felt pretty good doing it.
Plus, this run marks the beginning of my training for the Peachtree Roadrace! I'm planning to keep up with my spring/summer training plan, so that means that I'm goign to be doing another 2 or 3 2-mile runs the rest of this week. I'm already looking forward to getting back out there again on Wednesday for another 2 miles!
I'm linking up today with Erika, Patty, and April for Tuesdays on the Run! Head over to these fabulous ladies' blogs to read other running related posts.
Question for you: How do you get back in to running after a break due to surgery/illness/injury/a busy time of life/etc.?
